I want visitors to my website to be able to upload their own photos to my website so that they automatically appear in a gallery. Right now they send me emails and I have to log in to homestead and upload each picture one at a time. Any ideas?

Bob1065,

Homestead doesn't have this option as you can't FTP files to our servers, but there are a bunch of 3rd parties that allow this. jotform.com and uploadthingy.com come to mind as ones people have used in the past.

Hello Drew. My understanding is that those sites let people upload files, but I would still have to open each file and download it to place the picture on the website. Not much of an improvement. If you know differently, please let me know.Thanks for answering so many questions.

No problem, yes you would have to open each one. To put them directly onto your website would require that they have access to and use Sitebuilder. I have never seen the ability to do this would be to have your user name and password. In any case, you can't upload files to Homestead outside of Sitebuilder.
